Wow, I didn't think you could get this close with a 100 - 300 zoom. I like these a lot, especially the last one, but they look a bit over-saturated. What is that, btw?

thanks, saturation was not upped, just very colorful flowers and this lens seems to bring out the colors well. I have no idea what type of flowers these are, they are in my mothers garden and she is the gardener, Im not, I just like taking photos of them:-)

Beautiful pictures,

I don't know about the last one but here in California we call the middle on a Rock Rose.

I love that flower.

Very nice shots.
Steve

P.S. could provide me with a link to a larger picture of your avatar. It's gorgeous!

Thanks Julie, but it wanted a log in. I could only explore so I couldn't find it.
All the best,
Steve
